When You Miss Weight By 27Lbs OF COURSE Your Opponent Is Gonna Be Pissed!

 
 
 

Brazilian fighter Gabi Garcia couldn’t make weight for a Rizin women’s heavyweight fight. The contractually agreed upon weight for the fight was 209.4 pounds.  She was over by an astonishing 27lbs!  Gabi couldn’t have been trying to make weight. 27 pounds over? That’s gotta be some kind of record.

 
 

This fight was strange from the get-go. She was fighting a 53-year-old pro wrestler-turned-politician?!?  Her opponent Shinobu Kandori was pretty pissed off, as should be expected.

 
 

 

Gabi later broke down in tears over the situation while apologizing:

 

“I had problems three weeks before the fight and I thought I recovered. My first training here, my nose is with blood and my blood pressure. I know this time I no cut weight because I’m with many problems. I respect [Shinobu Kandori] I respect my opponent. She’s a legend here and I’m so sad. I cry a lot because this is the first time I no enter for this space. I need to say sorry for all my fans in Japan. I love you guys. Sorry [Nobuyuki] Sakakibara-san, [Nobuhiko] Takada, sorry [Kandori] and I challenge you for next year for the weight.”
